Take 2/Day 2...

Well, we're back from downtown Chicago. I recommend Everest to everybody. We had the tasting menu and all opted for the wine courses to go with. If you know me you know my tolerance is about a half a drink.......with our fab-o dinner I had a cocktail and then seven different glasses of wine. You cannot imagine the state I'm in right now. So here are the highlights:
  • I learned "air parenthesis" from Kipps
  • we all said "tot-a-ree" a lot and for some reason it's really funny
  • and I know where my pants are. Do you? {long story}
OK, so the cab driver took us in circles getting there & stopped 6 times to ask for directions {which made for a decent tour of downtown Chicago}. Our driver on the way home missed our exit as well & had to turn around. But the GEM of the evening was after Kipps got off the elevator on his floor a couple of drunkity guys got on our elevator and one of them hit on Jen. "My don't you look sexy over there"...and then...I KID YOU NOT - he leaned in uncomfortably close and he sniffed her - hard. "you even smell good" - OK...yes, I started laughing. Poor Jen had this completely shocked look. He got off the elevator before we did and we rode in silence for a minute {if you don't count me chuckling} until she said..."did he SNIFF me?"...aaaah, these are the memories that trade shows are made of...I'm going to pass out now. I will update again tomorrow.
